This year’s AGM is scheduled for Monday 24 November at Croydon Town Hall, Katharine Street.
Please join us from 6.30pm for a tea or coffee and the opportunity to network prior to the meeting, in a room near to the council chamber.
The AGM will start at 7pm in the council chamber.
The AGM will be followed by an open public meeting, with no set agenda.
We strongly encourage you to book via Eventbrite. This gives you quick entry on the night, allows us to cater adequately for numbers (papers, seating and refreshments), greatly reduces our admin and ensures we have your details to keep you informed.
Places are free and anyone with an interest in Croydon is most welcome to attend any of our meetings.
Interested in getting more involved?
All officers stand down at the AGM, in line with our Constitution, as the committee and officers are elected annually. Anyone is entitled to stand for committee.
The committee is keen to encourage anyone who is willing to take an active part to come forward for election.
Skills/experience particularly sought:
The current committee has functioned without a Secretary in post for much of the year. This is a key role that must be filled, going forward. This could be a Secretary, willing to take on full duties or a Minutes Secretary to take notes of public meetings and of committee meetings. This role could be shared.
Our Treasurer is not sure at this time whether he will stand again, due to other commitments, so we would welcome hearing from anyone interested in taking on this role.
Anyone with skills in social media and the ability to help run and to develop the website further would also be very welcome as our online presence and the scope of this is an area we’d like to develop further.
A committee member with database or spreadsheet skills would benefit CCC as we’d like to dedicate more time to building up a database of contacts. A Membership Secretary is needed to keep lists of members up to date, and to build our list of contacts. A dedicated person to maintain existing lists of contacts and to research other links would be extremely useful to further our work. This role could be shared.
There is a place for someone to oversee events, who can check, book and liaise with venues.
Those wishing to stand for election need to be aware of the time commitment involved. Everyone on the committee this year has taken an active role in driving CCC forward and the scope of our work means there is always more that can be done. A position on CCC committee means taking an active part in plans and a fair share of duties.
Committee roles are voluntary.
The current committee meets at least monthly as well as hosting public meetings at frequent intervals. We also attend other events and meetings to contribute and to keep abreast of issues and developments in Croydon.
To find out more about what is involved or to indicate your intention to stand, please contact the Chair, Elizabeth Ash. Please email CroydonNeighbourhoods@gmail.com or call 07864 676 088.
If you wish to stand for election please make your intention known by Friday 7 November 2014.
We want to hear from YOU!
The AGM business will be followed by an open forum session to discuss potential for future public meetings, and anything else those attending wish to raise for discussion. All we ask is that those attending refrain from making any party political statements as CCC is apolitical and open to all views.
It is particularly important that we know the numbers attending so we can order adequate refreshments, print papers, and plan seating. Please book you place on our Eventbrite page.
If demand exceeds capacity, priority will be given to those who pre-book a place. If you have difficulty using the booking system please get in touch by emailing or by phoning us.
CCC events are open to everyone.
We look forward to welcoming you!
